Abstract

The aim of this article is to contribute to the discussion on the nature, scope and meaning of the concept of human rights1 by suggesting that the "rights" approach is not the best way to develop a positive and modern human rights culture. Consequently, emphasis on the meaning of rights is not even instrumental in discovering the very essence of the concept of human rights as it is being invoked and applied in almost all areas of legal regulation. Instead, a deliberate constitutionalisation in which the scope for human rights violations would be reduced it is argued here is the only way to protect human dignity.
